Long COVID phenomena and coping with them
According to estimates, a significant portion of those infected with coronavirus will experience phenomena that may linger for weeks or months after recovery and make it more difficult for them to go back to normal. These phenomena are known as long COVID, continuous COVID or chronic COVID. Despite symptoms, at this stage the disease is no longer infectious.
What are long COVID phenomena?
The most common phenomena include great fatigue, concentration and memory problems, loss or change to taste or smell, muscle pains, joint pains and sleeping problems, but there are also other, rarer, symptoms.
Different patients may experience different symptoms at different intensity. Sometimes symptoms that did not develop during the acute disease stage will develop after recovery, and in rare cases long COVID symptoms may develop among those who were completely asymptomatic during the acute disease stage.
Diagnosis and treatment of long COVID
If you experience prolonged symptoms that interfere with your daily functioning, you should consulate your primary care physician, to examine the need for further investigation or treatment.
